Day 25 – John 16.24, 26-27: Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive and your joy will be complete. In that day you will ask in my name. I am not saying that I will ask the Father on your behalf. No, the Father himself loves you. Jude 20-21: Pray in the Holy Spirit. Keep yourselves in God’s love.
Thoughts for Thinking: (Changed Mondays & Thursdays.)
The greatest proof of Christianity for others is not how a man can logically analyze his reasons for believing, but how far in practice he will stake his life on his belief. –T. S. Eliot
The 3.5 billion unreached people on earth would form a single file line that would stretch around the equator 25 times! Can you picture 25 lines of Christless people, trampling endlessly toward hell? Let that vision stay with you day and night. –Larry Stockstill
As a large fire begins with kindling of small twigs and branches, even so a large revival is preceded by the prayers of a few hidden seemingly insignificant souls. –Gary Amirault
When I didn’t get what I thought I wanted, God always has given me something better. That’s just who He is. —Charles F. Stanley
People think I’m disciplined. It is not discipline. It is devotion. There is a great difference. —Luciano Pavarotti
Do not pray for easy lives; pray to be stronger men! Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers. Pray for powers equal to your tasks. Then the doing of your work shall be no miracle, but you shall be a miracle. —Phillips Brooks
If you are prepared, you will be confident, and you will do the job. –Tom Landry
Play for your own self-respect and the respect of your teammates. –Dan McGugin
I’ve always felt that a champion shouldn’t let things like questionable line calls bother her. –Chris Evert
People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing. That's why we recommend it daily. —Zig Ziglar

Life is 10 percent what happens to me and 90 percent of how I react to it.—John Maxwell
I want to be in the 20% that makes 80% of the difference. --Richard Graham
Adoption is when a child grows in its Mommy’s heart instead of her tummy. --unknown. Sounds like when God adopts us as His children, too. --Richard Graham
Every organization “reeks” of its leadership, whomever the leadership is. The next leadership will change many things when they arrive, perhaps everything, and it will have a fresh “reek.” The same is true of NAMB, CSBC, LBHA, and every church and her leadership. But God has chosen us, to work through us, to reach the lost. That is why it is so important we “reek” of Jesus Christ! The only way to “reek” of Jesus is to walk with Him exclusively. --Richard Graham
If you can't control your anger, you are as helpless as a city without walls waiting to be attacked. --The Book of Proverbs, The Bible
A mediocre person tells. A good person explains. A superior person demonstrates. A great person inspires others to see for themselves. --Harvey Mackay
Freedom, privileges, options, must constantly be exercised, even at the risk of inconvenience. --Jack Vance
